    Guys, this number is definately a commonwealth bank number.
    I recently recieved a text message telling me my personal loan had been processed and I would recieve my funds shortly. At first I thought it was suspicious coming from a mobile number, however I checked my netbank and I also had am email from the bank saying the same thing.
    However if you recieve any texts from the bank when your not expecting it then I would definately call them to make sure someone hasn't got a hold of your banking details or anything like that

    It's a scam. They say they're from the Commonwealth bank. They wanted my tax file number "and other details".

    Is alert number from Commbank. I had one that "my phonenumber was removed from my account, etc" whilst I didn't change my account.

    What seems to happen is that someone typed the wrong phone number (read mine) on their account, and changed it to their correct one. Because my number was there initially, I do get this alert message.

    So people without a commbank account could get this message too.

    I have also received a message from this number it appears to be a CBA number as the text had the correct CBA contact number 132221 that matches the secure CBA https webpage, I phoned to confirmed all correct just to be sure. it appears commonwealth bank may be accidentally sending these messages out, I was concerned as i have just come back from overseas so made sure. I always check numbers anyway to make sure they are legitimate, I don't know about the other comments made about it being a hoax.. all scams will give you a link or number to call,, the bank will only give you there general enquiry number, it is always better to double check with the bank direct or use their https webpage, thanks CBA for making us panic for nothing.

    I have been getting numerous Texts from this number to advise that certain credit card payments have been declined because I have locked international payments with my phone app with CBA. Several attempts at $8.60 and then $17.20...

    how did they get my mobile number linked to credit card? I have not been using phone tap...

    Hoax. Indian woman called "Mel" trying to get my address. The moment she asked, I just hung up immediately. CBA wouldn't use a private mobile to send a message - they have their own service to do that and don't use mobile networks.

    Also there is a phone number used (07) 3070 2070

    Reported to the police.

    Just received the text message "Your Travel Money Card transactions are available on Travel Money Online. Access with your card number and password or Registration code". I dialled the number. Received a message that this number is disconnected.

    Don't respond to any contact from this number. It is very obviously and definitely a hoax. Banks just don't send messages like this out, especially to people who aren't even their customers! Looks like the idiots know that smart people come on here to check it out and have bombed this site with their B/S as well. Piss off you idiots!Don't waste your time with them!
